About this Episode

Ever wondered what an ex-sumo wrestler thinks of the guys who are wrestling now? This is your episode! Hot Takes with Konishiki - what does he think of Terunofuji, Asanoyama, Shodai, Wakatakakage, Hoshoryu, falling into the audience, and what a wrestler needs to win. What's happening in this May basho? Konishiki sees it all.

Also, we give you our non-professional and absolutely fan-based breakdown of the sumo that's heating up in the May basho. Don't come to us for the sumo know-how. Listen to us for the silliness and fan love. Sumo smoldering, middle school dances, cirque du soleil, pancaking, sleepwalking, the sumo calendar we want to see, our favorite kimarites, strong side-hunkers, and "trickeration."
